In 2015/16, our law group undertook a significant project at our Ponoka location by constructing a new office building incorporating the existing building and adding on an additional structure with a roof-top balcony. Read Contractors Ltd. of Camrose, Alberta won the bidding process and took on our project. They both commenced and completed construction in a very timely fashion.

Throughout the journey and experience of the build, we established what will be a long-lasting relationship with their group. With Read’s assistance, our project evolved in terms of both design and finish into something which we are very proud of. Throughout the project both Logan and Cory were open to new ideas and helped us stay within our budget but also took the project well beyond the architectural design and vision. Both Logan and Cory are very meticulous in their approach and results and are extremely accomplished on many different levels.

From teardown of the interior of the existing structure to the framing of the new structure through to completion, their worksite was always impeccably neat and tidy.

Read Contracting Ltd. takes great pride in their workmanship, results and are completely professional and timely with their accounting and billing practices. As indicated we are thrilled with the results and have no qualms about endorsing and recommending their services and we would welcome any questions.
